Re: Dihydrocodeine

I took co-co codamel self prescribed which caused other problems badly and had to wean myself from them. My fault. They are addictive.

I always take co-codomol when my back is bad, I've never found them to be addictive. I only take one at a time though as two makes me feel nauseous.

Of course they are. That's the point. Addiction creates demand for more product. Co-Codamol, Codeine, Morphine etc. Stay well away. Seen it with other people. They swear blind they need it for pain relief but their cupboards and drawers are full of the things in long strip foil packs.

A slow way to kill yourself and introduce lots of gastro problems along the way.

Re: Dihydrocodeine

They are fine and effective in moderation; of course, one doesn't want to be taking them regularly.

When I had cancer I was prescribed morphine and tramadol - had no issues getting off those.

Re: Dihydrocodeine

I would have thought that if you had been prescribed these strong , possibly addictive pain killers your Doctor would have asked you to come back to him within 14 days to check .

No wonder it was bloody hard as you say and brought on some withdrawal symptoms ,well done ,Iím impressed even if your doctor wasnít .
Based on what I have read here, and internet research I have decided to stop taking my nightly DHC, two nights without them so far. It seems harder than previously remember, I am getting quite twitchy and restless throughout the night and not sleeping very well, early days I suppose, it can only get worse

Re: Dihydrocodeine

I have to take 2 codeine phosphate (60mg) at night with 2 paracetamol; if it wasn't for that I wouldn't sleep.

Waking up at 4am is quite common and the pain returns though not as intense as before. Then I'll either take 2 more codeine or 1 diclofenac tablet.

I've never taken more than 6 codeine in one day, though.

Yes it can . I wouldn't go down the road you've chosen if it was me. I think you're going to get some unwelcome withdrawal symptoms but your life ,your choice.
